Discover the beautiful North Coast region of Port Stephens, with its diverse blue water paradise, its pristine waterways, golden sandy beaches, and its eco diverse marina and National Parks. Nature is the centre of all that is Port Stephens and is the perfect escape from cosmopolitan Sydney. Cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge and tour through the leafy and affluent northern suburbs, travel over the Hawkesbury River, a holiday hub for boat lovers.

Arrive at The Australian Reptile Park, loaded with unique exhibits and animals. Enter ‘Lost World of Reptiles’ and journey into ancient pasts, reminiscent of an Indiana Jones movie scene and Spider World with spiders that are HUGE, HAIRY & SCARY! See platypus, Tasmanian Devils, wombats, friendly kangaroos, cuddly koalas, giant crocodiles.

Further north, we arrive at Port Stephens where our first stop is Nelson Bay Marina. Here you will have time to explore the seaside town and enjoy lunch (own expense) before boarding the Dolphin Watching cruise. Board a large and comfortable vessel and cruise out of the marina in search for pods of bottlenose dolphins and see views of the local beaches, dramatic headlands and unspoiled waterways. There is always that chance to ride the boom net at the back of the vessel so bring your swimsuit in the warmer months.

Next we head to the Stockton Sand Dunes, the largest sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere. Join a guided tour in a purpose-built 4WD, explore part of the 32 km long unspoiled beach and feel the sand between your toes. The 4WD will then take you to the tallest sand dune where you will have the chance to try sand-boarding, a thrill you will not forget.

Upon disembarking the 4WD tour, you will board the coach for your return transfer back to Sydney.
